Was chatting to my housemate, and he was talking about how much he loves pizza. Before he went off to the sewers to fight Shredder, I mentioned that pizza was the greatest gift that the Italian’s have ever given us. And then I modified that with, well except maybe the Roman Empire. We both looked confused. And since then, i’ve been thinking far too hard about it all, but doing absolutely no research.
I love history. If I was trying to advertise for history, the slogan would be ‘You can’t make this shit up’.
I liked history so much when I was a kid, my list of things I wanted to be when I grew up was ‘Archaeologist, Wizard or Writer’. Of course, I didn’t realise that you didn’t get a Wookie when you became an Archaeologist.
|HOLY SHITCATS, IS THAT THE ROSETTA STONE!?!?!?|
2 stars for Julius Caesar. Caesar was so goddamn badass, that not only did he turn the Republic into an Empire, he started the world-wide medical craze of ripping babies out of their wombs via the stomachs. I can only imagine it’s because he was impatient, and nobody makes Caesar impatient. Et tu Brutus, et tu. My Latin isn’t perfect, but I think that means ‘You haven’t heard the last of me’.
Another star for aqueducts. Yep. I still laugh, because they make me think of ducks that carry water.
LACK OF STARS
Russel Crowe. I might as well blame the Roman’s on him.
